If you’re looking for a way to brighten up your evening then Castleiney is the place to be!
Castleiney Drama Group are taking to the stage with Sam Cree’s comedy hit ‘Don’t Tell the Wife’. The show will be performed in Castleiney Parish Hall from Friday, November 21st to Sunday, November 23rd at 8pm.
Sam Cree is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular playwrights - Cree’s comedies have been produced all over the world. His characters are memorable - everyone recognizes his neighbour in them, but never themselves of course! Cree wrote scripts for the ‘Carry On’ films in the ‘60s & ‘Don’t tell the Wife’ is another of his hilarious comedies!
Follow the antics of Mrs Edna Willis (played by Audrey McDonnell) who is convinced that her husband, a plumber called Bobby (Michael Treacy), is chasing other women.
The hilarity is fuelled by a cast full of colourful characters, twisted plots and nosy neighbours.
Roisin Treacy plays neighbour Isobel, Jonathan Cullen takes on the role of Bobby’s apprentice Cyril, Trisha Treacy is the French lodger who takes a fancy to Bobby and Sean Fogarty, as a Corporation official, causes even more confusion.
Then there’s Cyril’s hives-prone girlfriend Hilda played by Katie Laffan and Dominic Brennan as Basil, who is Edna’s escort for a supposed night out, but, unknown to Edna, Bobbie and Basil are old buddies.
Throw in a greyhound called Bridget and absolute mayhem ensues.
The show will be directed by Tim Maher who has vast experience of acting over many years and who’s brain child it was to form a drama group in Castleiney earlier this year.
Tickets are priced at €10 for adults and €5 for children under the age of 16.
Tickets must be booked in advance by calling the box office on 087 103 9560 or by calling in to Nolan’s Shop in Castleiney.
